After knowing what NOT to do to reduce your belly fat, you must know what to do to get rid of it. You must accept that you cannot force your body to shed belly fat fast and you need to take things slowly. You have to take care of your estrogen levels, weak abdominal muscles and insulin levels.
First take advice from an experienced physical trainer about how to start your exercise regime. You can do exercises at home under the guidance of such a trainer or join a gym. Assemble a circuit of exercises that are working your entire body (pulling muscles, pushing muscles and lower body muscles). Perform these exercises one after another for 1-2 hours and then rest until the next day. If you are doing exercises at home, you can go for abs exercises, cardio and strength training. Exercise for at least 1 hour daily for 4-5 days a week. Go for brisk walking or jogging for half-an hour on the 7th day of the week. 


As a teen girl, you may like to have all kinds of food. But now that you want to lose weight, you must reduce your calorie intake. Have control on the portion of your meals. Take lots of veggies, fruits, salads and water. Have vegetables cooked in olive oil, which contains good fat necessary for your body. Vegetables make you feel full and also keep your energy levels high. Also consume lean protein like beans, sprouts, legumes, fish, chicken, eggs etc.
These are the best ways to lose belly fat fast for teenagers. You must love your body and accept the fact that fat-burning process will take time. Be positive!

The Most Popular Bodybuilders That Never Won Mr. Olympia


Champion Training & Nutrition Program
“The Sandow” is the most prestigious title in bodybuilding and is only won by the best of the best. These are the men that get the most of the fame, the money, the fans and they are true champions. But this doesn’t mean we can just forget about the other Olympia competitors and especially about the runner-ups who were really close to the title.  

Today we’ll take a look at some of the most popular bodybuilders of all time, that had a lot of fans and some amazing physiques...but who simply didn’t had that edge needed to win the supreme title of Mr. Olympia.

1. Lou Ferigno

We all remember “Big Lou” as one of the main characters in the “Pumping Iron” movie and the runner-up contender at the 1974 Mr. Olympia. He did manage to win important contests such as the IFBB Mr. America and Mr. Universe in ’73, the Mr. International and Mr. Universe in ’74 but he simply wasn’t able to beat the legendary Arnold at the Olympia. Yet he remains in history as a great bodybuilder, an actor, a fitness trainer and an iconic figure of this sport.
2. Rich Gaspari

Rich is a popular bodybuilder of the 80’s and 90’s and he is also known for his supplements company. He won a lot of important contests including the NPC Nationals and many European Grand Prix and was the runner-up at the Olympia in 1985, ’86 and ’87. Although he had a great physique, he simply couldn’t beat the record holder of eight consecutive wins – Lee Haney.

How To Diet: It Doesn't Have To Be Painful


When it comes to dieting, a lot of people fail. It's easy to get wrapped up in fad diets that don’t really work at all. And, it’s easy to give up on a diet before you’ve even seen any results. Most people don’t have the knowledge or resources to plan a full diet, which will be healthy and benefit their exercise. Instead, they will simply eat as little as possible. But, this can be bad on it’s own. To help you out, this post will be going through a few of the things that you should be considering when starting a new diet.


Food

Food plays a huge part in our exercise, health, and fitness. And, of course, it’s the main element of your diet. So, this area has to be taken seriously. Usually, cutting things out isn’t the best way to go about this. Instead, you need to be planning to get all of the nutrients you need to survive.

It’s easy to sink into habits with food. Things like chocolate and crisps are fine if you just have them occasionally. But, if you eat them all the time; you’ll notice some very negative effects on your body. This includes healthier foods, too. So, if you were to solely eat carrots; you’d notice the ill effects of what you’re doing very quickly. It’s not easy to make sure that you’re eating the right amounts of the right foods. And, you also need to make sure that you’re not eating too little of them, too. If you’re lifting heavy weights all the time, you will need more protein than most people to be able to heal from your exercise. Or, if you run a lot, you may need more sugar to give you the energy to get the workouts done. Of course, this completely depends on you and your body. So, it’s important to do some research to find the best ways to ensure that you’re eating the right foods.


Drink

The drinks that you consume have just as big of an effect on your diet as your food. Drinks are an area that slips a lot of people up, too. People assume that sugar free drinks are healthy. But, they usually have nasty chemicals in them that will stop you from losing weight. Or, they could even make you gain weight. And, of course, this isn’t what you want when you’re trying to diet.

Alcohol is a big drink that should be avoided while you’re dieting. This sort of drink is full of calories. And, they're empty ones. Instead of these calories being used as immediate energy, they’re usually stored as fat. And, this means that you’ll gain weight if you drink too much of them. Alcohol has a negative effect on your body as a whole. It will not only hinder weight loss, but it will also make workouts themselves harder.


Supplements

It’s well-known that supplements are used by a lot of fitness nuts. And, there’s good reason for this. With regular food, it’s hard to make sure that you’re getting the right amounts of specific nutrients. For example, some people will want to have a set amount of protein in their diet. But, eating meat and nuts to get it will also cause you to take on fat, salts, and other nutrients. Of course, you need these. But, not as much as you need the protein. A lot of people use a variety of different supplements in their day-to-day life. Usually, a supplement will either replace or accompany a meal. But, some are taken before and after workouts.

Choosing the right supplements for you will take some time and research. If you find a product with loads of great reviews and testimonials; this product is likely an excellent choice. But, you also need to get a professional opinion. It’s important to make sure that supplements are only taken when they’re needed. So, it can be worth talking to a doctor or dietitian to make sure that you’re not choosing options that aren’t good for you. Once you’ve found some good options, you shouldn't stop there. You should always be on the lookout for better and cheaper products.


This should give you a good idea of what you need to be considering to ensure that your diet is as good as possible. A lot of the work that goes into a diet is simple dedication. You have to be able to eat the same foods over and over, without getting bored. Once you start, this will be easy. But, as time goes by, this will get harder and harder. So, it’s a good idea to make sure that you push yourself.

Many women think that if they start going to the gym they will become too big and too muscular. But don’t worry ladies! Gaining big, strong muscles takes much more time and effort than some people think! Besides that, women have 10 to 30 times less of the hormones that cause muscle growth, making it very difficult for them to gain muscles. However, you will develop muscle tone and definition, which will make you look great! ;)



4. You Will Decrease the Risk of Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a very bad disease that strikes mainly in women. Weight training can increase spinal bone mineral density and combined with a proper diet will fight against osteoporosis. Other things that might help you would be yoga, stretching and running.

Get Creative With Your Treadmill


There is no denying in the benefits of a good old run. Stretching your legs, stretching your lungs, burning fat and improving your fitness. It’s a glorious way to exercise, especially when you can get out into the great outdoors, see the sights, smell the smells, gawp at the wonders and feel the wind rushing over your face. However, there can be a lot of factors that weigh into a run. It could be too hot or too cold. It could be raining or windy. It could be dark before you get home, and unsafe to run. However, that shouldn’t stop you making out for a run, or stop you making it to the gym. As such, we have come up with a few innovative and alternative ways for you to use a treadmill. They are no longer just a device for running or walking, but for full-body workouts too.


Side Shuffle Squats

The squat shuffle will test even the fittest of gym-lovers, and is all about building strength. What you need to do is stand on the treadmill side-on with your feet the typical shoulder-width apart before dropping down into the squat position. Then as the belt starts to move, you need to step sideways, stretching the width of your feet before closing the gap with your other foot. Do this for one minute, walk for two and then turn and face the other way for a minute. But why stay flat. A great way to boost your strength is to chuck a little incline on your treadmill and start squat shuffling uphill.

Climbing

This is proof of how versatile some gym equipment can be; it is just a matter of ingenuity. So, keeping the treadmill turned off, so that it is used as a form of resistance band, get into a push-up position behind the treadmill with your feet on the treadmill track. Now, start moving the belt with your toes. Imagine you are climbing, sliding the belt back as far you can with one leg before bring it back up to your chest and going again with the other leg. You will really start to feel the effects and feel them quickly. As such, start with ten pushes on each leg, then rest for a minute and go again. If you want to up the game a bit, why not incorporate some actual press-ups into your routine, or raise the incline. Don’t worry because the machine is turned off, there is no chance of you breaking the mechanisms.


Lunges

We all do lunges as a form of stretching and working out, but we typically do them in a static position. But why not take them onto the treadmill. The slower you do it the more effect this exercise will have. Standing on the belt and facing forward, have one foot on the side board and the other on the track. Now wait until you reach the back of the treadmill before taking a large step forward, lowering yourself down into a lunge. Once you have completed the lunge, swap legs and do the same on the other. Do this for 90 seconds and then walk for two-minutes before completing another set.
